Is there really anything more comforting than pasta? What about pasta and bacon? Okay, what about pasta, bacon and brie cheese? Right? It’s basically a match made in heaven and we all need to grab a bowl of this immediately.
I made this 2 weeks ago on a whim because I had some leftover brie from a dinner party and decided throwing it into some freshly cooked spaghetti was the sensible thing to do. I was a little worried because I didn’t know what the brie would do, but the result was mind blowing. Melted brie + spaghetti. Be still my heat. I was in love. I tweeted about it and basically 100 million people wanted to know the recipe (okay so maybe it was more like 10-12 people) so I decided it was only fair to share it with the world. I’m nice like that. I just want everyone to have the best possible dinner out there. Especially after a tough day at work.
Fast forward a few days later and I decided to do it again. For recipe testing purposes. Not because I wanted to eat another wheel of brie and then throw the leftovers into the pasta. I swear that wasn’t it. I am not a compulsive cheese eater and I don’t normally eat entire wedges of brie by myself. I pinkie promise
So the second time I decided to get extra snazzy. Because that’s what I do. I added some bacon and basil and reserved a scoop of the pasta water to help the brie melt down even faster. Brilliant. I’m totes obsessed.
So I’m for sure adding this quick and easy dish into the regular rounds of dinner. It goes exceptionally well with a little bubbly and some trashy television. (something I consider myself to be very good at) Plus my husband loved it. And he isn’t into pasta really. So it’s a winner all around.
